Cheer Up, Four panel, Square Swing Card

Oh, my!, I'm really in love with these Swing Cards. and Neenah Solids are perfect for this project.

The front of the card says it all, CHEER UP!!

All the character faces are from the Chibi Boy Expressions from OAK Tree Stamps stamped on COPIC Express Blending Card (perfect for COPIC coloring). You can also use the Print then Cut ready precolored images from OAK Tree Stamps.

The round panels were embossed using the Dots and Flowers embossing folder from Sizzix, and all the lettering are a double layer of white and gray Neenah cardstock.

All the corner cutout embellishments of the sorrounding panels are different, but you can also use only one and cut it 4 times.

I love the dimension you can achieve with swing or accordion cards, and to give it a little more, I used foam tape behind the faces.

Make sure to use a strong adhesive, like Rangers Multi Medium Matte to glue sequins, as they may come off during shipping.

The card is 4.25 inches square, so you can mail it in a standard A2 size envelope.

The SVG provided has all the panels, the lettering and the offset paths for stamping the image without all the fuzzy cutting.

  1. Import in DS
  2. If needed, resize to 18.46 inches wide (the grouped images are 18.46, but it cuts OK on 8.5" x 11" cardstock)
  3. Cut
  4. Assemble
  5. Enjoy, comment and subscribe!
